Preserved unpublished on a bookshelf in the library of the dolls' house created for Queen Mary in 1924, this enchanting story is a previously unknown work by the celebrated poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West. The delightful tale tells of a spirit who inhabits the dolls' house, unseen by conservators, paying guests to the Castle and even Queen Mary herself. Having seemingly been present for the major moments of fairy tale history such as Cinderella's ball, Sleeping Beauty's waking kiss, and the creation of Aladdin's palace, she has made herself at home in this early twentieth-century house, baffling even its maker. This sumptuous book is beautifully bound in real cloth and uniquely illustrated by Kate Baylay. This charming story by a major figure in twentieth-century literature will appeal to adults and children alike.
